Secretary of the Union ministry of housing and urban affairs Durga Shankar Mishra, who was on a two-day tour to the state, said Ranchi smart city will not only change the way of life of the residents of the state capital, but will also emerge as a role model for other cities to follow.
On Saturday, Mishra visited the site of the Ranchi smart city, the control and command centre and Jharkhand Urban Planning and Management Institute (JUPMI) and inspected other infrastructural projects which are being undertaken at the site by Ranchi Smart City Corporation Limited (RSCCL).
Terming the control and command centre as the nervous system of the city, Mishra directed officials to ensure that the centre becomes a self-sustainable institution and more versatile to assist the day-to-day life of citizens for the next 100 years.
“The control and command centre developed for Ranchi smart city is a state-of-the-art infrastructure which is helping in women’s safety, crime control and providing traffic assistance. We should not stop here and ensure that more and more people are made aware of this so I have asked the officials to arrange visits by school and college students so that they are aware how technology is assisting them in their day-to-day lives,” said Mishra.
RSCCL CEO Amit Kumar and municipal commissioner of Ranchi Mukesh Kumar explained the role of the control and command centre to Mishra and assured him that they will be making a detailed project on how the project can be made sustainable. “We informed the visiting secretary about the command centre services, which includes ANPR, RLVD, public address system, SOS for women’s safety and emergency boxes and he expressed happiness. We will be soon bringing up a revenue model to make the project sustainable.”
At JUPMI, Mishra was all praises for the building and said the Union government is committed towards development of smart cities and all required support will be provided to RSCCL for the development of the smart city.
Earlier in the day, Mishra reached Morhabadi ground and used the bicycle sharing system of RMC and did cycling along with other officials of RSCCL.
